Sean Penn is in talks to join Christian Bale in Niels Arden Oplev’s drama, THE LAST PHOTOGRAPH. Oplev is set to direct from a script penned by Kurt Johnstad. The idea, originally setup at Warner Brothers by Zack and Deborah Snyder, is set in modern-day Afghanistan with Bale playing the role of an American who is the only surviver after his group is attacked, and Penn potentially playing the role of a retired ex-Special Operations solider who arrives at the scene determined to free a family member who has been kidnapped. Dark Castle’s Joel Silver and Andrew Rona are set to produce along with the Snyders and Gianni Nunnari.
Penn is repped by CAA.
